One Scenario For The Home Office To Consider

Imagine a plush villa in suburban Islamabad and the satellite tv is showing all the news reports about swine flu. Naturally, Osama thinks "why don't I get a few dozen longhaul tickets cheap from the bucket shop in town and send some trainee martyrs for a week's holiday in Mexico and then onwards to anywhere in the west?" There's no need for the logistical problem of smuggling explosives and weapons through airport security and the lads only have to go to cinemas, museums, shopping malls, football grounds, hospitals etc and refrain from stopping their sneezes with hankies and tissues. Just imagine the disruption that could be caused.
I hope this scenario has been identified in the COBRA talks and that the Border and Immigration Agency is back-checking incoming passenger manifests against the original departure airports.

Interesting mind you have, Gallimaufry. It would be good though.

Thinking up wicked plans for world domination passes the time in my hollowed out desert island. Once I've done the Times crossword, polished the nuclear submarine and hoovered the missile silo it's either that or watching Countdown, Mr Bond.
